The Six Flags Magic Mountain (SFMM) Discussion Thread

Page 2218 - Wonder Woman Roller Coaster for 2022!

Recommended Posts

If we're back to Full Throttle, then I have a question for people:

 

Why exactly would Premier designing the ride so upsetting? I don't get this attitude of "Since it's not Intamin it won't be amazing".

 

Enthusiasts love airtime, and SFMM is so limited in that area, the thought is that Intamin would be the best choice to provide it given their history. I can't think of a single Premier built ride that offers insane airtime. Perhaps that could change? Going by the rumors, this could be their most expansive coaster yet.

 

I've been on a little old Premier ride at this one theme park in Florida that has excellent air time. It's kind of obscure so I'm sure you never heard of it but it's called Revenge of the Mummy and it had excellent air time, imo.

^ aww I see, i was thinking you might have forgotten about it completely so I just wanted to mention it. But for me, I think if you can hit 3 - 4 good spots with a solid amount of ejector similar to what's on RotM, then this coaster would suffice. I don't know if SFMM necessarily needs a skyrush, but I agree it would be nice.

It's still not confirmed I don't believe that Premier is doing the SFMM coaster - they only confirmed they're doing a California coaster, of which two are upcoming..it's possible Premier could be doing a compact ride for SCBB and someone else could be doing the SFMM coaster. (Which is what I'm hoping - Premier for SCBB and Intamin for SFMM would make my year)

And your obnoxious attitude is one of the main reason Californians are glad you did!

 

With Knott's, Magic Mountain, Disneyland and Universal, there is always some new attraction going on. THAT is what makes us spoiled out here in So Cal. I'm looking forward to MM and KBF announcements, and no amount of you guys crapping on our 4 parks and their attractions to make yourselves feel superior is going to change that! Sorry!

They didn't said anything about a coaster they said that there is going to be a big announcement for upcoming week that we must not miss. The only gave as hint: Premier Rides is California dreaming once again. But it's Premier and you could almost say it is going to be a coaster in CA. If it's for SFMM I hope not but I must say hearing launched and Premier rides facebook I'm almost sure that they are the manufacture of the new SFMM ride we know as Full Throttle. I'm still hoping on a Intamin Crazy Airtime machine, but it doesn't seem to be that way. O well if it is going to be Premier Rides it better have Airtime, or next time maybe?

I would not hold my breath that SCBB is getting a premier launched coaster. I see them getting a Spinner or at most a eurofighter.

 

I think you guys are looking too much into the wording of these hints. California Dreaming is a well known term to people and was probably just used for fun to refer tot he state they are building a ride in. I'm sure they are referring to SFMM in the post.

Personally the whole "California Dreaming" line made me think of Santa Cruz and not Magic Mountain, because it's SCBB that uses the the classic surfing and California songs in their adds, not SFMM.

 

I like how you're thinking! There is hope still for the Intamin giga we ALL want!!! I know it's doubtful, but I'm gonna keep dreamin'. I'll be happy whatever SFMM gets cause with the terrain, it's gonna be a huge custom built original just for the Mountain!

I think you better replace 'rides' with 'coasters'. The park doesn't have rides, that's everyone's number one legitimate complaint about the place. It's purely a roller coaster park. Go to a park like SFGAd, Canada's Wonderland, Cedar Point, etc and see big parks that have different ride experiences.

 

 

SFMM seems to me to be a roller coaster museum, with nearly every type of major coaster represented (absent, of course, an airtime machine from Intamin).

 

I'm glad they added a thrilling non-coaster ride this year and look forward to riding it this winter.

I am too. I just wish it had more than 16 seats. Looking at Kings Dominions drop tower a couple of weeks ago, which holds something like 50 people, and then thinking back to the capacity of Lex Luthor at one of the busiest parks in the chain just makes me shake my head....

Exactly what I was wanting to say. I think pondering which park most closely reflects the spirit of the song "California Dreamin'" is way overthinking.

 

Plus, maybe I've been overly hopeful since I'm a big Premier fan, but the evidence has seemed quite strong to me, even if it still technically can only be considered speculation.

Aside from Tatsu, the coasters are SFMM are the epitome of mediocre. Hopefully this ride changes that...

Well most parks are like that, 2 or 3 world class coasters. 2 or great coasters, and the rest are average.

 

i.e.

 

SF:Great Adventure

World Class: El Toro, Nitro

Good: Bizarro, Superman

Average: Batman, Green Lantern etc.

LOL! In what crazy world is one of the more intense B&M invert layouts considered "average???" Have you ever been to Six Flags Great Adventure???

 

Seriously, were you dropped on your head as a child or something?

 

--Robb "That should go in the dumbest things said on TPR thread." Alvey

 

Agreed 100%. We were at Great Adventure yesterday and had one of the best rides we've ever had on Batman. The ride was flying through the course last night. I guess some people have a problem with this ride because it's a clone but the Batman inverted coasters are great rides.
